Happy Reunion

Today something happened that has actually happened quite a few times before: A former employee came back and applied to work here again. That’s always nice of course. Then everyone knows what they’re getting themselves into.

But what I wanted to tell you about is something she said. It must be said that she was one of the first girls to work in the company when we first started up almost 10 years ago. One thing that she finds admirable about JDL is that back then, we emphasized that we will not compromise on the style. We loved – and still love – the French/Nordic country style. It’s just such a big part of us that we have always insisted that we won’t change course along the way.

But of course that’s easy to say when you’re just starting out. Times change and your own personal taste might change as well. But in fact we HAVE stuck with it through all these years. And she was really impressed with that. You know where you’ve got us – she said. I was really happy to hear that. After all, it’s not something we give much thought to or talk about in our day-to-day work. To us that’s just how it is. We wouldn’t dream of going for the latest trends just because someone dictates it. Naturally, new things happen within the style as well but the foundation stays the same. And we’re pretty proud of that.

Wishing you a lovely summer day out there. /Vivian
